Events Calendar

Connecting the DOTS is a transportation-themed month of activities taking place at Rutgers-New Brunswick throughout the month of April.

All events will feature a special Connecting the DOTS Passport. The more events you attend, the more points you’ll receive. Bonus points are given to everyone who attends bicycle safety and educational events. Students with the most points at the end of the month will be entered into a drawing to win gift cards and other great prizes!

To obtain your Connecting the DOTS Passport, you can download it here, or stop by any of the Connecting the DOTS events!

If you can't make it to the events, you can take our annual transportation survey to provide feedback on your on-campus transportation experience! Take the survey here.
